Immigration Reform

On Monday, January 26, 2015 Mayors from 33 cities, along with the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the National League of Cities, filed an amicus brief in the Texas v. United States lawsuit that challenged President Obama’s executive action on immigration.  Mayor Adrian O. Mapp in great support of the brief had joined this important action to help progress the national conversation on immigration reform as it greatly impacts communities and the residents of Plainfield. The Administration held a workshop that covered the different components of the President's Executive Action on Immigration Reform and provided residents with a better understanding of the process that impacts some of our residents and their family members. The Mayor believes supporting this effort is a human and economic imperative that is crucial to our City.  We will continue identifying resources and will be holding future workshops on immigration issues and reform.
